Website Construction (CMS-Based)

Project Details

What We Need
  • Development of a new website using a Content Management System (CMS)
  • Training to ensure Organization's staff members can update content and manage the site post-launch
  • Note: This project is for a website built with a Content Management System (CMS), such as Wordpress, Squarespace, Joomla, or Drupal. A CMS-based website can be maintained and updated easily (no coding required!)
Additional Details

We have been working with a wireframe and website designer through Catchafire, and are almost ready to start constructing. This is a very unique and exciting project! Our old website is Drupal but we are interested in moving to Wordpress.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a volunteer working on a website design, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have wireframes, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to subsidize costs for youth and community organizations with limited funds to witness our speakers, programs, and gain access to our resources and network.

SpeakOut's website is our main way of communicating with our audience and it will help us improve our efforts around being a platform for important social justice and educational voices. We want our website to be easy to navigate and intuitive, and to help our business efforts.
